With all of these marvelous Spring activities comes one more, one that many may not find as enjoyable. Drum roll please...SPRING CLEANING! I say out with the old, traditional ways of cleaning... try doing it a little differently this year.

This also means that olive oil has made many appearances on my wardrobe. I was lucky enough to grow up with a mom who was quite gifted in the subject of stain removal, particularly olive oil stain removal.
